Lecture: “Creating Shakespeares: The First Folio and its Afterlives”

Location: Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art

Friday, January 29, 12 p.m.

Lunchtime Lecture by Lara Bovilsky, associate professor of English

Professor Bovilsky will discuss what Shakespeare’s different published works teach us about how he and his contemporaries wrote and thought about theater, as well as how the Folio was changed and encountered differently by later generations of editors and readers. How did we come to value theater – seen in its own time as disreputable popular culture – as literature? What role did the Folio play in creating our own ideas about the value of gifted writers and their works? Bring your lunch or purchase one from Marché Museum Café.
